3 Myths About Life Missions That Are Holding You Back

Updated: May 15, 2023

Do you ever feel like you're stuck, like you're not sure what your life mission is? You're not alone. Many people feel this way, and it's because of the myths surrounding life missions that make it seem like there's only one and that it's work-related. In reality, there are multiple life missions, they can be related to anything, and not fulfilling them won't ruin your life. In this post, we'll take a closer look at these myths and how they can affect your personal development.

Myth #1: There's Only One Life Mission One of the most pervasive myths about life missions is that there's only one. This myth puts a lot of pressure on us to find the one thing we're meant to do in life, and it can make us feel lost and overwhelmed when we don't know what that is. In reality, we all have at least three life missions that we can work on simultaneously or one at a time at different phases of our lives. These missions are part of a set of soul types, lessons to learn, talents, desires, etc. that we incarnate with.

Myth #2: It's Work-Related Another common myth is that your life missions have to be work-related. While some people's missions may be related to their work, it's not true for everyone. Your life missions can be embodied in your everyday life, like a mission of love or a mission to be a good friend, partner, or parent. The important thing is to recognize that your missions are unique to you, and it may not be what you think it is.

Myth #3: Not Fulfilling Your Life Missions Will Ruin Your Life

The third and most harmful myth is that if you don't fulfill your life missions, you'll ruin your life. This myth puts a lot of pressure on us to find our life missions and to achieve them at all costs. But the truth is, not fulfilling your life missions won't ruin your life. Your soul might be disappointed, but it re-calibrates quickly, and you'll get another chance in a future incarnation. It's important to remember that your life missions are a journey, not a destination, and that you can fulfill them in many different ways throughout your life.

Why Focusing on One Life Mission Is Bad for Your Personal Development Focusing on one life mission can be bad for your personal development because it can make you feel like you're missing out on other opportunities. When you're so focused on one thing, you may not be able to see other things that could be just as fulfilling. By focusing on multiple life missions, you open yourself up to a broader range of experiences, and you can learn and grow in different ways.

Furthermore, obsessing over finding the one and only mission can make it so that you forget to simply be. By simply being who you are and honouring your passions, you end up fulfilling your life missions. When you follow your heart and do what you love, you naturally align with your soul's purpose. So, instead of focusing on finding the one and only mission, focus on living your life authentically and passionately.

The myths surrounding life missions can be harmful to our personal development. It's important to remember that we all have multiple life missions, they can be related to anything, and not fulfilling them won't ruin our lives. By focusing on multiple life missions, we open ourselves up to a broader range of experiences, and we can learn and grow in different ways. So, embrace your passions, honour your unique path, and remember that your life mission is a journey, not a destination.
